Looks good with the TT formalwear.

Hustler got beat by a couple cars that have no business being classed in TTB.

Thanks for the pics. I really dreaded the vinyl but it looks pretty damn good. Thanks to everyone who came out.

That's one clean ae86 - hopefully those aren't sportmaxxes.

Hustlers car sure sits pretty.

Hey, great pics! Did you happen to get any of my S2000 on track?

I've actually drove that AE86 and it rips, another member of the bad a Corpus track crew.

Unfortunately it looked better than it "went" thanks to the driver. I could not get my act together out there, but still had a good time. I was truly heart broken by that time sheet in the last session. 120mph through #6 is a serious commitment and I did it every lap in hopes of seeing a 1:49.

I literally spun 2 and went through 1 at 90mph backwards close to the wall and I still think 6 is the worst. Trail braking through a bumpy turn at 120 is a nightmare. I should have grown a pair and stayed flat out to see that extra 1 sec.

I was really confused, I was smokin through launch-keyhole-bus-stop, hanging with the TTB cars in 6-diamond, raping through the carousel...then Sugar&Spice all fell apart every lap. I was getting destroyed by car-lengths every time in that corner. I don't know what I was doing wrong, but it was really, really wrong.


Hooking it through the carousel in 4th at 90mph is AWESOME! Load the car up, keep it tight, try not to loop it on exit, feel manly. I was chomping down the TTA cars in there, even the GT3 with huge rubbers. I hit the 7200rpm rev limit in 5th a couple times in that corner, that's a Charmin moment. My fastest time of the day was in the DQ'd session, lol.

I need to lighten my front left bad. I could loop the car with steering angle in the carousel, but fought the car in sugar& spice. It was really impressive to see those SM's haul mail through there.

I like when they give you that, you just slapped my mom look for going 4 wheels off. I got DQ'd on session 2, then heard the old TT director and a few others mumbling about having to grid me up in the pack for the next TTsession even though I had DQ'd. Like my lap time was inferior, I'm just going flat out sucka's.

Posted up my Conga line thoughts in the trackjunkies thread.

Between 16 and 15 the track goes off camber slightly and there are those outside rumble strips. When I was finally getting it right I was getting on the gas exiting 17 as soon as the car was settled and then letting the rear slide around when the track went off camber exiting 16, backing the rear tires onto those strips and setting it up perfectly for 15. I bet I was 1 sec faster through there when I let the car slide to set up better for 15.

I was laying rubber from the inside tire on the exit-curb between 18-17, and throttle steering out. My poor tires I'm nowhere near lifting from 17-lift-off.

Ok, sounds more like a crappy dif than driving error, I'll still side with you pussing out though and not the diff.

YOU MOTHERFUCK! I was hardly pussing out, it was a lack of skill. I couldn't seem to get the car to the track out point with the same speed as the SM guys and not sure why. This is where skill fails me, lol. I want to see that video of me punishing the tires in that corner.

Honestly, pushing hard through t6 doesn't make a big difference. I never once went flat out through there. Why? Because there's a tight turn followed immediately by another. T5 and t4. Most important corners are the ones leading directly to the longest straights.
